We are excited to welcome guest instructor Glenn Gutmacher to present this one-of-a-kind class. A sourcing practitioner, trainer, and leader with decades of experience, Glenn is also an expert on sourcing in the financial industry.

Glenn led the first dedicated US diversity sourcing team at State Street Corporation, a G-SIB/G-SIFI bank with over $10B annual revenue, from September 2015 to March 2018 with seven full-time direct reports in Boston. He then built out the bank's global sourcing function in India and Poland, serving as VP Global Talent Sourcing and Recruitment Marketing until May 2021. Before that, Glenn had led sourcing teams or served as an individual contributor sourcer at large tech companies, including Avanade, Getronics, and Microsoft. He was also one of the first sourcing trainers in the '90s and has since been a frequent presenter at SourceCon, Sourcing Summit, HRTX/RecruitingDaily, and many other conferences.

The need for diverse talent in banking, insurance, asset management, fintech, and related industries has reached a fever pitch. In the wake of MeToo, BLM, Stop Asian Hate, the SEC ruling around transparency of HR data reporting, and more, financial services companies are eager to improve their diversity recruiting.

One of the first internal obstacles your recruiting team may face is a claim of a lack of diverse talent. In a company-wide memo in June 2020, Wells Fargo CEO Charles Scharf said, "the unfortunate reality is that there is a very limited pool of black talent to recruit from." In response to the backlash, he apologized in September, adding, "it's clear to me that, across the industry, we have not done enough to improve diversity, especially at senior leadership levels."

Diverse talent does exist in financial services, and this class will help you find exactly those people you are seeking. Glenn's adaptation of techniques curated from our Certified Diversity Sourcing Professional program to typical yet hard-to-fill roles in financial services will give you the edge in finding more diverse financial talent.

Day 1 - Wednesday, September 29th

This session will show you how to apply core Sourcing skills to a range of intermediate to advanced level diversity search applications using a couple of common roles in institutional finance. We will demonstrate specific search strings, strategies, sites, and tools to find each of several common target diversity candidate types (including women, under-represented racial and ethnic minorities, veterans, LGBTQ, and people with disabilities).

Day 2 - Thursday, September 30th

On Day 2, Glenn will build on the first session by demonstrating additional diversity searches for a few more senior financial roles before opening up the session to requests from the audience.

Come prepared with your burning financial industry diversity sourcing questions!  This is your opportunity to get them answered in real-time by a professional with years of hands-on experience in the industry.

Class Outcomes: You will learn the methodology behind several core skills for effective Sourcing, and how to apply those skills expertly to overcome diversity search challenges in the context of experienced professional financial roles that typically need passive talent in order to achieve a qualified interview slate. But now you'll be in a position to help ensure a greater likelihood of a diverse interview slate!
